Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema were once the untouchable trio, but only one of Real Madrid's feted "BBC" can be sure of their place against Bayern Munich Wednesday. Ronaldo has dragged Real into the Champions League semifinals with, even by his standards, an astonishing goal glut that includes 22 in 12 games, and at least one in each of his last 11 matches in Europe. Benzema's fall has been more surprising given the striker had been Zinedine Zidane's preferred partner for Ronaldo, his work rate and supply highly valued despite the Frenchman's lack of goals.But Benzema's link-up play has slackened, with that dry patch – one goal in 10 games and only four in 24 – more clearly visible. Bale and Benzema's dip has coincided with Ronaldo's golden run, which may not be entirely coincidental.
